Epistolary Novel

(1/11) > >>

Elkhound:
Has anyone ever written a fanfic in this style?  That is, consisting of various people writing letters to each other about the events---each from his/her own point of view?  I'm thinking something like the account of the wedding of Lord Peter Wimsy and Harriet Vane at the beginning of "Busman's Honeymoon."

Aerlys:
The Moonstone also comes to mind.

But no, I haven't used this style myself.

DesertRose:
I find epistolary style to be difficult to write, myself.

Perhaps the art of writing letters at all is being lost in the age of email, IM, and text messages. :D

Elkhound:
Part of the problem is to find a different "voice" for each of the letter-writers.

Here's a challenge--retell one of the canon novels or stories from the point of view of a minor character writing to a friend/relation.

bronwynevaine:
That would be fun. But I can't even finish what I started so I am NOT starting anything new.
